Livin' way up now in a penthouse high
Our steaks are rare and our martini's dry
Folks below they say, "It ain't fair"
Hell with them, I really don't care
Joie de vivre, mon amie, ain't this the life

Having a party on a big jet plane
I got so drunk that I could feel no pain
Hangin' out in Acapulco
Drinkin' rum and sniffin' co-co
Pretty senorita look this way

Dancing through the night
Everything's alright
Girlfriend and a wife

Oh, ain't this the life, tell me ain't this the life
Momma ain't this the life, baby ain't this the life
Oh baby, baby, baby ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, tell me baby, baby ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, baby, baby, baby ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, ain't this the life, now

Tropical island in the deep blue sea
The natives are friendly and the lobster's free
Sipping cognac like a French king
Plenty of room, I own the whole thing
Joie de vivre, mon amie, ain't this the life

Think I'll go out now on a shopping spree
Breakfast in New York, dinner in Paris
Hangin' out with Lynn and Suzie
Have a massage and a jacuzzi
Climb into bed and see what's on TV

Dancing through the night
Everything's alright
Girlfriend and a wife

Oh, ain't this the life, ain't this the life
Ain't this the life, ain't this the life
Oh baby, oh baby, oh ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, baby, baby, baby ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, baby, baby, baby ain't this the life
Oh, ain't this the life, oh, ain't this the life, now

Baby, baby, baby, ain't this the life
Momma, momma, momma ain't this the life
Tell me, tell me, tell me ain't this the life

Baby, baby, baby, ain't this the life
Momma, momma, momma ain't this the life
Tell me, tell me, tell me ain't this the life

Baby, baby, baby, ain't this the life
Momma, momma, momma ain't this the life
Tell me, tell me, tell me ain't this the life

'Cause it ain't just the life, 'cause it ain't just the life
'Cause it ain't just the life, life, life, life
